Overdue Books

Trying this again as the number of classes where a quarter to a third of the kiddos can't check out because of overdue (by two weeks or more) books is just ridiculous.  Come on, small to medium fry friends. Keep your books in your backpack or book box when you're not actively reading them.  :/ :P

  1. Something that has helped *tremendously* in my library is extending the check out time to 4 cycles/weeks instead of the traditional 2. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it's like an auto-renewal for students. I also let students check out 5 items at at time, so they could potentially have more fines, but it's actually less. I don't renew the book unless absolutely necessary, and our overdues/fines have cut in half since last year!
